SMOKY CHICOS IN THE SHARE THIS WEEK!
Beneficial Farms CSA provides affordable weekly shares of healthy, locally and regionally grown food to members for the entire year. We are a collaborative CSA that supports over 30 farms in New Mexico and beyond to offer a diverse range of food choices. We work only with farms that use sustainable farming methods. Our core partner farms are Mesa Top Farm, Gemini Farm, Red Mountain Farm, Synergia Ranch and Talon de Gato. click here for a list of all the farms and their websites.
A happy CSA member loves to cook, is adventurous with food, enjoys eating with the seasons and being part of a community that supports local farmers who use sustainable, life-affirming methods.

Member satisfaction and flexibility make Beneficial Farms CSA unique. Because we know that not all of our members will like everything in each weeks' share, we set up an exchange table at one of our pickup locations. Members can opt-out of their share any week without penalty if they are going out of town.
